Drone Price Hits $10,000 on Amazon

Douglas A. McIntyre Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) sells drones for a little as $40. At the high end of the drone spectrum, Amazon has drones priced at $10,000. A drone for everyone, these are an example of how broadly the drone market has become.

The $9,999 DJI Inspire 1 Pro is sold with free shipping. That is where the common features of the product end. Marketers at Amazon describe the product:

  • DJI Inspire 1 Pro – The ultimate package that is ready to go for a full day of flight.
  • The new motor’s performance has also been improved, providing a greater sense of control.
  • Included professional 4K camera and 3-axis stabilization gimbal (Zenmuse X5)
  • Live, wireless HD video transmission via DJI Lightbridge
  • Two remotes allow you to control the aircraft while your flight partner controls the camera.

The DJI Inspire 1 Pro comes with hundreds of pieces, which range from extra blades to complex cameras and carrying cases that appear hard enough to stop a bullet.
